Dear Friend of Core Evolution,
We are living in unprecedented times. While the whole world tries to stop the effect of COVID-19 on our lives, we all contribute by caring for ourselves and others to stay healthy and strong. Since health and well-being is also the guiding principle of our work, we suspended all direct-contact seminars so far until the beginning of our new trainings in August 2020. Until then we conduct individual and group work online.
We all have become used to the term ‘social distancing’ - but it is more meant as physical distancing. Socialis (latin) means allied or feeling connected and socius (latin) means friend. Especially in these times of physical isolation, and for many it is also personal hardship; let us stay connected with our hearts and minds, as we navigate this difficult phase in our history.
This is the time, where we must practice what we teach - empathy and compassion and the wisdom of the Body-Mind. In Core Evolution we offer down to earth tools, to stay in contact with oneself, to regulate our body- and nervous system, to reach a place of coherence, from where we can act from a sense of embodiment and presence and inner leadership.
During these difficult times of the lock-down and until May 31, 2020 we will offer every Sunday at 12.00 (noon - California time) a meeting place to come together. Siegmar will lead a tuning in/body scan/meditation with a short lecture on body, mind and consciousness and the healing of trauma, followed by Q&A from participants. These meetings of 75 minutes are free of charge. Let us know if you would like to participate and we will send you the access: https://www.coreevolution.de/en/contact.html

Every pandemic poses a threat to our existence. For eons, mankind has suffered existential threats again and again. This information of our ancestors, generations and families is still in the Universal Consciousness or the Akashic Field. In our embodiment, we enter into this field of experience on all levels of our existence. Depending on our constitution and resources, we may get overwhelmed and traumatized; in the moment of fear and existential threat we can get triggered and re-traumatized, or, we can meet the challenge and lead the situation to a healthy integration and healing.
In Core Evolution this takes place on the physical, emotional, cognitive and spiritual / consciousness level and ultimately leads to the healing of Individual, Family, Generational and Collective Trauma - our motive for decades:
Integrate Your Past • Be in the Present • Shape Your Future
Never in history have we been so consciously and technically connected on this globe as now. This is where the present challenge can also become a great opportunity for transformation in which everybody can participate, individually and collectively. This process is not easy and often needs support to raise the awareness of how we hold these patterns of history in our system. This is where the integrative, body-oriented and mindfulness-centered approach of Core Evolution has been offering support now for over 40 years.
To extend our present support and contribution in these difficult times, Siegmar offers to all new clients and searchers, a 30-minute free individual consultation. If you decide to continue after these initial 30 minutes, we will offer the discounted fee, which normally only Core Evolution Trainees receive, until the end of May 2020.
Feel free to reach out and contact us: http://www.coreevolution.de/en/contact.html
This crisis will also pass. It is good to stay vigilant and aware of how you can support the process of healing, individually and in society. At the same time, it is important to stay mindful with your Body-Mind Process, to keep an energy dynamic alive, stay in open and caring communication, center/meditate, so that you can contribute with your energy, knowledge and love - to keep the vision for the further unfolding of a healthy, creative and fulfilling live.
In this spirit we send you our invitation and heartfelt greetings,
Cornelia & Siegmar Gerken
Work with us
With over 40 years
experience in the fields of Humanistic, Transpersonal and
Somatic Psychology we naturally address all professional topics.
Psychology, Spirituality and Science – Teaching Mindfulness for the Understanding of the Unity of All Existence.
For participants who want to expand their consciousness and choices in life and for practitioners who want to bring an integrative body-oriented dimension to their work.
Who we are
We understand our commitment and work of over forty years in CORE EVOLUTION®
as a contribution to an emotionally integrated, peaceful society.
Core Evolution is an integrative, relational, psychodynamic, body-oriented and mindfulness-centered therapy - an innovative approach to a Whole Person Psychology based on Mindfulness and rooted in the Essence of Being. Its foundation is the comprehensive understanding that essence and life energy are expressed through our Core - the center of the individuated universal life energy, a wellspring of healing, joy, creativity and wisdom.
Core Evolution addresses the pulsation of life in each of us. Life expresses itself in pulsation. Every breath, every heartbeat, every movement, every thought represents the flow of life in us. If this flow is distorted or restricted, we limit our perception and expression in life. Therefore we recognize and support the interconnectedness on all levels of our existence.
Core Evolution addresses the wholeness of a person – the personal qualities and unique potential. From this trust in our inherent power of love, goodness, creativity and capacity for self-healing, we address the obstacles and limitations a person faces to freely unfold these qualities and move toward self-realization – personally and professionally.
Core Evolution Summer Intensive • September 14 - 18, 2020
Rejuvenate Body and Mind
Come and join participants from different parts of the world
to move Energy and Consciousness into new dimensions
Embodiment and Presence open the possibilities to live our qualities and full potential. Often these qualities could not fully unfold due to past or present events which leads to questions like:
• “How can I let go of patterns that limit me and move toward integration and healing?”
• “How can I re-connect with my vision and potential and become the co-creator of my life again?”
This Intensive will give you personal answers and practical solutions to these questions to go beyond the trauma and live your essence!
In our body-oriented and psychodynamic approach, we create a safe space in which participants can touch into Core developmental traumas of emotional and relational attachment and bonding issues. The work ranges from prenatal moments to present adulthood and allows the sensing and new integration of difficult experiences into a harmonious flow of life.
Mindfulness practices let the Pulsation of Life become a conscious experience, represented in the breath, body-perception, movement and flow of energy. We explore the matrix of the inner (emotional, psychological, spiritual) and outer (somatic, expressive, environmental) ground, the extended Body-Mind Field and how we relate from these places.
With the knowledge of the interpersonal and affective neuroscience we activate the Neuroplasticity of the brain toward positive life changes.
You learn to trust and regulate the streams of energy expressed in your biological, somatic and emotional life force to find your own voice and authentic self-expression. You move beyond limiting traumatic events.
In your Embodiment, you affirm your place in the world and express your essential qualities.
In your Presence, you share your loving capacity and direct life from the Will of Your Heart™.
